    Another scandal involving President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, broke on Thursday morning when a new report outlined allegations that the Secret Service intervened in a firearm-related incident a few years ago.

    The report comes after Hunter Biden revealed in December that he was under federal criminal investigation over matters related to his taxes and overseas business dealings.

    The new allegations facing Hunter Biden stem from an October 2018 incident between Hunter Biden and Hallie Biden, the wife of Hunter Biden's deceased brother, Beau Biden. Hunter Biden dated his brother's widow and later fathered a child with a stripper while he was living with Hallie Biden.

    Hallie Biden allegedly took Hunter Biden's gun and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store, which prompted an investigation from law enforcement officials who were concerned because the trash can was close to a high school. Hallie Biden later returned to retrieve the firearm only to discover it was missing.

    "Secret Service agents approached the owner of the store where Hunter bought the gun and asked to take the paperwork involving the sale, according to two people, one of whom has firsthand knowledge of the episode and the other was briefed by a Secret Service agent after the fact," Politico reported. "The gun store owner refused to supply the paperwork, suspecting that the Secret Service officers wanted to hide Hunter's ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime, the two people said. The owner, Ron Palmieri, later turned over the papers to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, which oversees federal gun laws."

    The report notes that the Secret Service agents at the agency's offices in Wilmington, Delaware, would unofficially help manage Joe Biden's security and that the agency does not have any official record of incident.

    The report added:

  • POLITICO obtained copies of the Firearms Transaction Record and a receipt for the gun dated Oct. 12, 2018.
  • Hunter responded "no" to a question on the transaction record that asks, "Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?" Five years earlier, he had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine, and he and family members have spoken about his history of drug use.

    Lying on an ATF Form 4473 is a felony that can carry a 10-year prison sentence with a $250,000 fine. The report comes as Joe Biden has demanded that Congress enact tougher gun laws.

    Hallie Biden told Hunter Biden what she did, at which point he told her to retrieve the firearm. When she returned to the store to get the firearm out of the trash, it was missing. The Delaware State Police and the FBI responded to the scene to investigate and questioned Hunter Biden. A copy of the police report said that Hunter Biden "became very agitated" when he was asked if the firearm had been used to commit a crime.

    When Hunter Biden was asked if he was doing drugs or drinking, Hunter Biden responded by saying that Hallie Biden was concerned about him being mentally unstable, saying that she was concerned that he was going to commit suicide.

    The report says that "an older man who regularly rummages through the grocery's store's trash to collect recyclable items" found the firearm and returned it days later, although it does not say who the firearm was returned to.

    The White House claims that Biden "did not have any knowledge of, or involvement in, the Secret Service's alleged role in this incident."
